“I don’t know if the fire ever left,” he says, “but I had some doubts for a while if people still wanted to hear my music, or if radio would still play my music anymore.” Then, one day, it all became as clear to Sammy as the first time he had ever heard George Jones or Mel Street sing.
“One Saturday morning, I’m sitting on my bus listening to the radio, and this old Johnny Paycheck song comes on called “Old Violin.” That’s how I felt–like an old violin, fixin’ to be put away and never played again.” Hearing that song was a surreal moment for Sammy.
Morgan and singer Sammy Kershaw were married in 2001 but divorced six years later. The daughter of the late singer George Morgan, Lorrie continues to tour, with upcoming dates including Nov.
White owns a private property design and landscape company in Mt.
